I am an Assistant Scientist (non-tenure track faculty) at the University of Florida, based full time at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. Previously, I was a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Florida and at Center for Neutrino Physics, Virginia Tech. I obtained my PhD from Ghent University, Belgium.
My research lies at the interface of nuclear and particle physics, with the primary focus on neutrino physics and related areas. My research interests and work span the following areas:
Neutrino-Nucleus Interactions: electron-nucleus scattering, neutrino-nucleus scattering, coherent elastic neutrino-nucleus scattering (CEvNS), electroweak interactions
Neutrino Properties: neutrino masses and hierarchy, mixing angles, CP violation phase
Beyond the Standard Model Physics: sub-GeV dark matter, sterile neutrinos, non-standard neutrino interactions
Detector Development: Liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber (LArTPC) detector, photon detection system, cosmic-ray tagger
I am currently also serving as an Early Career representative for the Neutrino Physics Frontier in the ongoing Snowmass 2021 process that lays out scientific vision for the future of particle physics in the US and its international partners. See Symmetry Magazine article: Defining the next decade of US particle physics.
Experimental Collaborations: I am currently working on the SBND Experiment at Fermilab and Coherent CAPTAIN-Mills Experiment at the Los Alamos National Laboratory. Previously, I worked on E12-14-012 Experiment at Hall A of Jefferson Lab, MicroBooNE Experiment at Fermilab, protoDUNE Experiment at CERN, and have been part of the Neutrino Platform at CERN.
I am currently also serving as a board member of the Neutrino Scattering Theory Experiment Collaboration (NuSTEC).
Theoretical Collaborators: In my theory work I primarily collaborate with the group of Natalie Jachowicz (Ghent University), including Alexis Nikolakopoulos, Nils Van Dessel, and Kajetan Niewczas, and Raúl González Jiménez (Complutense University of Madrid), and Marco Martini.
